“Great Rafting Experience”
Reviewed August 26, 2013

I've been rafting a few times before, and this was easily one of my favorite trips. Great for almost any age and activity level, I definitely planning on bringing more friends and family back with me next year!

“Rafting/zip lining combo was lots of fun”
Reviewed August 24, 2013 via mobile

Took my 10 year old for a full day zip line/ rafting tour. Nice long zip lines and guides made it fun and informative. Relaxing and delicious fajita lunch at outpost. Browns canyon route was just exciting enough for daughter without being scary. Guide did a great job. Highly recommend. Would do again

“Great Family Day”
Reviewed August 22, 2013

Our family of 4 (youngest 10) booked with AVA for the Class 3 rafting in Brown's Canyon and it was fantastic! Everything from booking the trip, pre river safety instructions and the guide who was assigned to our raft were exceptional! From the moment they checked you in, you felt they knew what they were doing and had your enjoyment as their primary goal. Have to mention Kyle, our guide who was excellent. Trusting, humorous, professional and knowledgeable, he was great. Photos worth getting. Great pictures taken on our run. We hope to come back again next year.

“3 days! Mild-to-Wild”
Reviewed August 14, 2013

A very fun physically demanding family vacation. We all felt we acomplished something on this vacation. 3 days of rafting and an evening of rock climbing. Our guide Mikey was so cool (and could grill a mean steak).Our guide was also clearly experienced enough to be layed back and fun on this trip. We spent our first evening in Brown's canyon. Talk about beautiful. The staff was all professional. AVA is THE place to go for Rafting they aren't overly commercialized and we really liked that aspect.
